Ebenezer Scrooge's transformation through one night of ghosts from Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Be.
Christmas is coming, - The Goose is panicking, - And Living Spit are back - To start your Christmas with a zing! Hard-hearted Ebenezer Scrooge hates the season of goodwill. Until a visit from three Phantoms one memorable Christmas Eve makes him rethink his miserly ways and turn his wicked life upside down...blah blah blah. We all know the story. We've all seen the film(s). But who's the best Scrooge of all time? Albert Finney? Alistair Sim? Patrick Stewart? Well, just hold your horses there, Sir/Madam! Because you've yet to witness the actor Howard Coggins's unique take on the eponymous anti-hero of Dickens' festive masterpiece. Like a coiled spring he waits in the wings, ready to take up the mantle and give the performance of his career as the mean miserabilist, Ebenezer Scrooge. And he's brought Stu Mcloughlin along for the ride to dress up, sing, dance and generally act like a complete idiot whilst playing ALL the other parts. With silly songs, pitiful puppetry and more Dickensian daftness than you can shake a selection box at - a feast of festive foolery!
Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside Mrs Shears' dead dog. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in the book he is writing to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington. I made a decision. I did this by thinking of all the things I could do and deciding whether they were the right decision or not. He has an extraordinary brain, exceptional at maths while ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world. My name is Christopher John Francis Boone. I know all the countries of the world and the capital cities. And every prime number up to 7507.
